This renunciation is consistent with the altered patterns of marriage that were part of the peasant response to the draft law of 1762. Some parents diminished their daughters’ opportunities for a good match in order to acquire exemptions for sons. In some cases the renunciation of dowry resources meant that the prospects for marriage became seriously restricted, if not lost. But once again, it appears that causal agency is blurred.
